I baked two cakes this week. My father's at the beginning of the week, and my daughter's at the end of the week. My father's was a fairly simple round cake, but Sierra wanted a dragon cake, and being me, I needed to do something more interesting than the last dragon cake I made. So I thought about a better way to make wings. I thought about a hoarde for it to curl around. And as I cut out cookie dough to accommodate my grand schemes, I thought about making cookie talons and teeth as well. As I bent over the counter making tiny triangle claws, I suddenly realized where Marina gets her obsessive attention to detail. At least we can work our compulsions to our advantage!
Now I get about a week to recover (and buy more supplies) before the next cake.
